Yes - I quite distinctly remember having this very discussion with Mark a
few years back regarding the Bus Factor. Was clear at that time that a
centralised backup was infeasible.

I’m glad to say that new additions to the protocol have made possible
decentralised solutions to this conundrum.

Unfortunately no one so far has been able to discern the meaning of this
new architecture. Se we’re building an AI solution to manage the complexity
for us.
